    That just gave me the strangest idea…Tie a fly on a couple of nipple rings. Yup.

    I started a forward stroke on a double haul just as a gust of wind kicked up. Pierced my ear lobe clean with a Guide Intruder with size 1/0 hook. The barb was pinched, but it was still a pain in the ass to remove.

    My worst incident involved a size 1/0 popper, a lot of wind and the back of my head. Thank God for pliers.

    Pro Tip:

    Get a friend to brace the hooked arm so that you can focus on yanking the hook out yourself with one fast pull. It’s not elegant, but it has gotten a treble out of my hand before without too much fuss.

    Just hooked back of my arm last weekend. Pushed through and snipped with side cutters.

    My favorite part is the six beers to pull out that tiny ass hook. I’ll give you kudos for going another hour with it in you and I wont lie, even a hook that small still stings like a mother, but come on man pull that sucker out rub some dirt on it, walk it off, whatever your dad used to tell you so you can save your beer to enjoy after you get off the water. And for crying out loud, pinch your barbs down brother!
